Cooler Weather and New Stash!


What could be better! After two weeks of extreme heat and humidity, it finally cooled down yesterday - over 20 degrees cooler! So my walk last night and tonight was quite pleasant. I also received some new stash in the mail today. With the designer CHS closing down, I thought I'd better nab some of the charts I wanted quickly before they were gone forever! So I ordered 3 charts from my online shop, including one I've never seen before. It is called Visiting Bird. You can see it above, along with the linen I will be stitching it on - Lakeside's "Meadow Rue". In all the years I've been looking at CHS designs and I've never, somehow seen this one.... But I'm so happy I did and I cannot wait to start stitching on it later tonight!

I can't wait to see your start. That is a great pattern and you picked out the perfect linen for it.

Nice new stash, Linda! I know the cooler weather didn't last... my mom in Delaware was reporting temps of 102 yesterday. YIKES! Stay cool!
